February 3, 2016 Sea Day

The weather warmed to a high of 79 degrees and we continued to loose time as we head further east. We moved the clocks forward another 30 minutes to be in step with the local time in India and Sri Lanka. We also moved out of the danger area for pirates so there are no longer guards stationed on deck.

Another relaxing day at sea where we attended a lecture with our new location guide David who talked about things to explore on your own in Mangalore and Cochin, India and Hambantota, Sri Lanka.

Brian Stoddart lectured on India and the sport of Cricket while Werner Salinger lectured on the world’s largest Muslim country, Indonesia. Kent attended the Royal Dutch Tea while Mark attended the watercolor class. We then saw the movie “Suffragette” with Carey Mulligan, Anne-Marie Duff and Helena Bonham-Carter.

The evening’s entertainer was Portia Emare, a vocalist from London’s West End where she has performed in several Broadway shows. She has a beautiful voice and we enjoyed her show of familiar tunes.
